I always get asked by people how I’m feeling or how is my pain? While they are trying to be polite, it becomes a constant education of Fibromyalgia and Chronic pain. I thought I would include the definition of chronic here just to inform people of what it actually means to have chronic pain.
Definition of chronic
1a: continuing or occurring again and again for a long time (chronic indigestion, chronic experiments)
1b: suffering from a chronic disease (the special needs of chronic patients)
2a: always present or encountered (especially: constantly vexing, weakening, or troubling, chronic petty warfare, chronic meddling in one another’s domestic affairs – Amatzia Baram)
2b: being such habitually (a chronic grumbler)
